Mills Touristic Circuit of Argontim

Celorico de Basto
Description

The mills circuit of Argontim is formed by a set of ten recovered mills of water, located in a small tract along the river Bugio. The trail goes along the watercourses which involves the mills, that where submitted to small interventions to allow the passage of visitors. This set also includes one old sawmill wood, build over the river; it used water as an energy source. In this sawmill is installed the Museum Center of “Planalto da Lameira” which approaches the work of sawmill, ethnographic and archaeological themes. The existence of a vast set of mills in the county of “Rego” is linked with the traditional production of cereals. We don’t know when the first mills had been build, but there were already references in 1072 in the donation of “Vila Boa “to the Monastery of “Pombeiro”.
